It is summer. With it comes regular sunshine, sweltering hot weather, trips to the beach (or pool), and, of course, the latest slew of releases from Fearless Records. Among these is the record Bad Habits from Every Avenue. In anticipation of the release, the band has come out with “Whatever Happened To You,” a track from the upcoming album, and it hits harder and deeper than anything on the band previous outings.

Without a doubt, the song displays a band entering the throes of maturity. While still incessantly catchy and distinctly pop-oriented, the saccharine has been traded in for raw emotion. The song begins with distorted riffing serving as a base for weaving guitar work, and slowly leads into David Strauchman singing with a raw bitterness that is more reminiscient of Rise Against than We The Kings. However, that is not to say that the band has abandoned the radio-ready pop that made them scene darlings to begin with. The chorus is more addicting than most of the material on All Time Low’s latest album, and legions of tweens will definitely be singing the verses at Every Avenue’s upcoming live shows. To put it simply, the band has matured and created a sound that is considerably lighter than Set Your Goals but still harder hitting and emotional than Hey Mondey-esque pop. It is highly recommended to fans of the band and the genre.
